Design Philosophie DC15
The design is the result of the designers years of experience – The perfect blend of speed, manoeuvrability and good manners. Vice free and a real joy to sail, the DC15 delivers superb racing at club, circuit and championship level. The rig is highly adjustable with excellent power control and, when coupled with the high volume hull, these features allow a wide competitive crew weight range. The wide beam gives the leverage required for high performance. The asymmetric spinnaker is easy to use, and is stowed in a bag.
The deck layout is simple and efficient. The ergonomic hull and adjustable toestraps make hiking more comfortable while the wide beam gives the leverage required for high performance. The twin sitting out configuration allows the heavier team member to be equally competitive as the helm or the crew. The asymmetric spinnaker is easy to use, and is stowed in a bag.Principle controls are led to either side of the boat, so that the helm or crew can “change gear” without losing speed. The open transom allows the DC15 to largely self-drain after a capsize and the built in self bailer clears remaining water. The lightweight mast uses a specially developed section and adjustable spreaders – These and a deck level mast bend screw give excellent control. Rake and sideways bend are instantly variable via the jib halyard led back to the cockpit.
